Close to 100 people came out for the recent Fair Trade Soiree at Roselawn Centre, said Port Colborne Fair Trade committee member Rosemary Armstrong.
Armstrong said the event, held Friday, May 23, was to celebrate five years of being a Fair Trade city.
Port Colborne was the first in Ontario to become a fair trade city in 2009, and since then, Barrie, Toronto, Guelph and Ottawa have come on board.
Armstrong said there was “delicious Fair Trade and locally sourced goodies expertly prepared and served by the chef and staff of Roselawn, and an excellent address by Katherine Martinko from TreeHugger magazine.”
The Deacons of Jazz performed at the event.
“Special thanks to Bremfield’s,who supplied the beautiful flowers on each table, Mayor Vance Badawey and Level Ground Coffee Company.”
